First, I wanted to cross-post my thoughts on what a dick Mitt Romney is:
I’m going to vote for Obama and aside from feeling entitled to be able to purchase healthcare coverage at a rate commensurate to men, and to not get royally screwed in the rear just because I had the audacity to get diagnosed with a pituitary tumor, I don’t feel entitled to any of the shit Romney mentioned.
Sure, if I were to fall on hard times, I would like to think the government would lend me a hand. That’s what we should do for people who fall upon hard times. We help them. But if you think for one second that people who are on public assistance are happy about it, then you have never talked to or met a person on public assistance. If you think for one second that just because The Poors™ may have a cell phone, or an Xbox, or a refrigerator (A FUCKING REFRIGERATOR!), or are unfortunate enough to get gout (because apparently only rich people get gout, doncha know!), that they are living high off the hog (as they try to raise a family of four on $20K per year), then you lack empathy for Americans; you lack respect for Americans; and ultimately, you lack what it takes to be president of the United States.
Basically? You’re an asshole. And this country isn’t going to elect another asshole. Eight years was enough.
Second, I’m watching The Rachel Maddow Show, and she just said that the previously unsourced video in which Romney talks about scouting Chinese factories for places to make whatever bullshit he was making back in his Bain days came from the same source as today’s videos. Remember that video? I posted it, then took it down, then posted it, then took it down again.***
Just now, David Corn told Rachel Maddow that the source of the videos (there are rumors circulating that the source was a waiter at the fundraiser — just goes to show, you probably shouldn’t shit on an entire class of people when members of that class of people are serving your dumbass (pun intended)) apologizes for impersonating her on YouTube.
Corn also just said that the fundraiser took place on May 17, 2012 at the home of private equity muckity muck Marc Leder, who made headlines when he threw a sex party in 2011. (That ought to go over well with the values voter crowd.) Leder is a bit of a playboy and also >throws wild parties in St. Bart.
Gawl, I love today.
This Mittastrophe is epic.
***Karoli over at Crooks and Liars posted the video, and you can view it there.
